looking pretty good. so with the clear sky, it's cool and numbers have dropped into the 30s in some spots but this panel here starting out with 50 in san francisco, 404 in oakland. low 40s for morgan hill. 42. good morning in san jose with 45 in half moon bay and from the east bay hills camera the winds will continue to shift to an offshore component and that's going to aid in our warmup. 39 santa rosa, as well as novato. concord and livermore 38 for you in napa with 36 out by the delta. starting out on the cool side. then with full sunshine we will see the warmup. but we are looking at conditions to be pretty dangerous at the coast with the surf getting pretty high. so spring-like for super bowl sunday. the warm pattern into early next week. and record temperatures will be possible. so with that beach hazard statement we will have swells anywhere from 7 to 10 feet. from sonoma, point reyes, montara, half moon bay, ocean beach, particularly dangerous here. you can see the current wave
